Tests on tragic teenager's body.

MEDICAL tests are to be carried out on the body of a teenager to establish what caused her death.

Nineteen-year-old Shahena Begun, of St George's Terrace, Kidderminster was rushed to hospital by ambulance after she started to have difficulty breathing.

Paramedics hooked her up to an inhaler, but she suddenly stopped breathing on her journey to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

She died several hours later at 10.55pm on Thursday, August 24, in the accident and emergency department at the Worcester hospital.

Yesterday, Worcestershire coroner Victor Round, said: "She does have a history of asthma, which may have contributed.

"We're hoping medical tests will help establish the cause of her death."

He adjourned the inquest to a date yet to be fixed.
